Logan stood in the corner of the doorway and listened. He was already used to it.
Autumn gritted her teeth.
“I have just one condition. I can tell you where the reporter is, but you must promise me that this matter ends here.”
Nicole unexpectedly raised her eyebrows. Seeing Autumn’s furious face, Nicole frowned and said, “Did you really order this?”
Autumn’s body stiffened for a moment. She immediately retorted.
“It’s not me. I’m not in the mood to do this!” Nicole said, “But you know who it is, don’t you?”
Autumn replied, “I know who it is, but I won’t tell you. You just need to solve the matter at hand. It’s best not to ask more questions.”
A trace of coldness crossed Nicole’s eyes. Seeing her hesitation, Autumn felt a little anxious.
“The delay in the construction period will cost billions of dollars. Even if Stanton Corporation is rich, there’s no need to lose all this money, right? Before the quality inspection department moves in, let that reporter take the blame and this matter will be over once and for all. What are you hesitating for?”
After hearing Autumn’s words, Nicole’s expression turned extremely cold.
Nicole would much rather lose her profit so that she could find out the person behind this and destroy that person.
Why should she let that person off so easily? Why should she take this dumb loss?
Nicole’s gaze paused slightly. She raised her eyes to look at Autumn.
“Autumn Ferguson, you’re mistaken. I’m not someone who can just turn a blind eye to such a grievance. If someone rubs sand in my eyes, I’ll make sure to gouge their eyes out.”
Nicole smiled as she said the most ruthless words. At that moment, she was exuding a bitter chill.
Autumn’s expression fiercely stiffened. She was stunned.
In a blink of an eye, Nicole looked at Autumn gently and smiled.
“It doesn’t matter if you tell me or not. Anyway, I’ll find that reporter sooner or later. Since I proposed this inspection, I’m ready to lose money. What’s this bit of loss anyway?”
Autumn finally understood Nicole’s attitude. Nicole was stubborn.
When Nicole went to the Leonard family to ask for help, that was just a momentary urgency. She was not really desperate.
After that urgent period, Nicole did not care for other people’s help anymore.
Autumn was dumbfounded for a moment.
“You… Really don’t care about those losses?”
It could obviously be avoided, but Nicole would prefer not to.
Nicole smiled. “I’ll get back my losses from the person who did this. Ms. Ferguson, you don’t have to worry about it.”
Seeing that Autumn was still immersed in the shock and was silent, Nicole reminded her.
“Do you want to change the terms?”
Autumn opened her mouth. Her lips trembled a little. She suddenly did not know what to say.
Even if Eric were to face this scenario, he would not refuse so simply.
Why did Nicole not go by the book?
Autumn pursed her lips and sniffled.
“It’s fine if you don’t appreciate it. Change the terms? Will you agree if I want you to leave Clayton?”
Nicole raised her eyebrows and laughed.
Autumn still did not give up.
The man inside the lounge finally could not hold back any longer. Even if he did not want to see this psychotic woman anymore, he could not continue to play d**d when he was mentioned.
“Ms. Ferguson, did I offend you in any way?”
Clayton, who was always gentle and modest, also had such a cold and solemn side. His gaze was cold as he looked at Autumn.
Autumn regretted it just as the words left her mouth. The door of the lounge was frosted and translucent. A tall man suddenly appeared, and in the next second, the man opened the door and came out.
Autumn’s face changed in an instant.
Why was Clayton here?
Did he hear their conversation earlier?
